Metawants: Books

Here’s is what I hope to tackle – book wise – in 2014.

One Topic: WWI books that came out in 2012/2013

The War that Ended Peace: The Road to 1914 (Margeret Macmillian) – 784 pages
Catastrophe 1914: Europe Goes To War (Max Hastings) – 672 pages
The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 (Christopher Clark) – 746 pages
July 1914: Countdown to War (Sean McMeekin) – 482 pages
1913: In Search of the World Before the Great War (Charles Emmerson) – 544 pages

I’m starting with The Sleepwalkers.

To be continued: this is just the first category of books I want to read. I’ll update with my science, philosophy and comtemporary affairs books I want to read in 2014.
